    Hi, i know that lot of people exprienced drops in serps lately becouse of the last google updates but in my case i have a wierd problem...until 11th of october i was haveing good traffic from google search an average of 20 000 unic visitors, then for one week until 18th the traffic droped to 2000 visivors at day, then for the weekend the traffic has returned to 25 - 30 000 visitors, but since yesterday, the 21th of october the search traffic in down again, my website ranks only with a couple of pages and evin with those one worst than before....
    Which can be the couse of this fluctuation?

    Movie streaming site?
    Then I think you have been hit by manual reviewing.

    A lot of that happened this October. You are one of the unfortunates I think.

    Get some social signals up to counter it.

    On webmaster stools they give you delayed keyword data. Study the kw's from before the drop and those after the drop. It will give you a very precise idea of what happened.

    As i have said already, before i was ranking for most of the interior pages basicaly i was in top 10 with almost all the movies i have on my website...
    Now only the home page ranks on the 10th place (before it was on the 2-3) for a couple of keywords, but it still ranks on the first place for the main keyword....the problem is that 99% of the interior pages can't be found anymore in serps...

    Thanks for your replay...if it was hit by manual reviewing shouldn't i have to find something about this in google webmastertools in the "manual actions" section?
    Also can you please be more specific about the "social signals" ? i suppose you are talking about facebook likes, g+ and twitter, but how many of them do you think that can help, and is it better do get those signals only for the homepage or for the interior pages too?

    well you said you ranked. Anything that ranks has to have issues right? There is nothing like ranking forever. Study your metrics over at webmasters or analytics account

    This is something that my other BH friends are talking about like if Google really review sites manually. I know Matt said something about this in one of his videos in webmaster tools.

    Its somethine like, they will review your site manually, IF and ONLY IF, someone reported your site to their Google Webspam report page.

    If it is not, then follow some guide that talks about backlink checking for penalty.
    I can't post link so search it..

    Thank you for the replay. i think i will try to disavaw all the links, althought i only have a few...i haven't done any agressive SEO on this website...i have created only 10-12 links on other sites that i have (wich i already deleted most of them), and the rest of the links are made natural by other people recomending diferent movies....i think that one of the mistakes was that most of the links have the same anchor...but as the title of tghis post sais, what is this wierd dance that my site is doing...appearing and disappearing from serps? Does happens to anybody else??

    Exactly..! it might be because of overuse of exact match anchor text that is not acceptable anymore after Penguin 2.1 update.
    So, get some good backlinks from authoritative websites to recover it.


    Also make sure that the internal pages are interlinked properly, so that link juice could be transferred in a better way through the entire website.

    Make sure you have good Backlinks. Manual reviewing might be the cause of this low traffic. You can get the results back on track by socializing a bit.
